      Why, does it make my philosophy mean more to you? That's it!

      If you gave meaning to nothing, you'd be feeling very sick, and worse; not caring that you're sick.

      Then you're obviously misinterpreting my post. I have five stars, hence why you are hearing from me. But don't try to miss the point anyhow.

      Hmm, I wonder why you're telling me how you interpret my posts. Is it all you can say? Is it describing yourself more than it describes me?

      Clearly this is a commentary on you. I'll let you figure that one out.

      I guess, you can interpret it however you want.

      I already figured it out, because I actually know what I am saying.

      Are you looking for a specific answer, Mark, or one that just makes sense? In the case of the latter, let me elaborate...

      What is the purpose of anything meaning anything? So that it matters - so that it's significant. It is the basis of logic. What does a bottle opener mean? In my case, it means you can open a bottle of beer. What does opening a bottle of beer mean? It means you can, with enough bottles open, get drunk. What does getting drunk mean? It means you can get to experience the world in a perspective different from the "norm." What does that mean? It means that there is not only one way to perceive that which we all perceive on a daily basis. It highlights significance.

      "Meaning" is simply the acknowledgment of why anything actually matters, either subjectively or objectively. What is the meaning of establishing movie theaters? It is so that people can go and enjoy films. What is the meaning of weaponry? It is so that one can either defend oneself, or elevate the level of one's own offense.

      The word "kill" means "cause to die; put to death, usually intentionally or knowingly." It shows the significance of the word "kill." It is a progression that tells how something progresses into the significance of something else.

      Yes, no?

      If this is a trick question, though, and you are looking for a specific answer that you already have in mind, I've got nothing.

      No. Asking "what is the purpose of meaning" is perfectly valid question, not senseless banter.

      Asking "why do CD's eat turkey before rising with the devil in the pale moonlight" is senseless banter. If you want to begin senseless banter with a question..begin it with an invalid one.

      Perhaps it's not the question that's senseless, but rather, the answers.

      Am I a philosopher yet?

      Exactly right.

      Mark75 is demeaning the posts of forum members; he's being ignorant again; he doesn't really care, he just wants attention. Having said that, I'm stopping here, I wouldn't bother spoon feeding him unless he's in the HELP forum.

      ...no.

      The answers have all been conceived with some sort of sense (even Ynot's, haha) given the question that you asked. Sorry. You failed.

      Look, you don't understand my points, and that's fine, but there's no need for this ad hominem.

      Until you clearly state a point (which does not include feigning back on "maybe I was making senseless banter that you turned into a perfectly philosophical question"), you don't have one. Try again.

      I may be drunk, but I'm still paying attention.

      What is the purpose of this question? What is the meaning of this one? What is the purpose of the meaning of purpose? What is the purpose of this post? There is no purpose in answering any of this. So what meaning does it have?

      It makes things interesting.
      A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service
      and compassion are the things which renew humanity.
